nature

My spirits were elevated by the enchanting appearance of nature; the past was blotted from my memory, the present was tranquil, and the future gilded by bright rays of hope, and anticipations of joy.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley [p 81]

Frankenstein has been sitting in the basket next to my bed, waiting to be read, for at least six months now...
This quote will certainly help bump it up on the pile! Unfortunately, fiction isn't happening for me right now, but when I get to read fiction again, (hopefully soon!) I will look forward to that one.
